Holiday Beverages~by Jenny Baxter of Jennys Kitchen

Merry Christmas Everyone! I can’t believe that the big day is a week away! So, I asked myself, a Holiday Open House before or after Christmas? Then I thought about all my previous parties and the memories just come flooding to me. Fire Island New York at Christmas is spell- bounding. I recall watching my kids skate on the pond amongst cattails and geese flying overhead their honking muffled by the icy waves hitting the shore brought a huge smile to my face. How many pots of spiked chocolate mint coffee did I serve to my neighbors after we walked home from Kismet Lighthouse singing carols? Then there was Monterey. Midnight mass at the Carmel Mission with a scrumptious buffet beforehand for our closest friends and Jim Toles reading” The Night Before Christmas” as the smoke from a sweet-smelling pipe danced above his head. How they loved my eggnog! Rio Vista Coast Guard Station always brought the true meaning of the Christmas spirit to those of us that lived there. The extended family feeling enveloped all of us as we came together for a New Year’s Eve bash knowing we only had to walk across the court yard and be home safely. It didn’t matter how many glasses of Mulled Merlot we had until it hit us the next morning! I guess it’s time to create yet another memory right here in Calaveras County and another libation to remember it by! So, as I ponder my next event here are a few beverages you may wish to serve to your family and guests over these special holidays.....
